Plus size fit
Here's the difference between Plus Size fit and Standard Size fit:
SHOULDER HARNESS FIT
Designed with unique contours and specialized dimensions, the plus-size fit shoulder strap is more than added length. Its specialized design delivers 3-key differences to provide the correct fit for larger body shapes.
LENGTH: By increasing the proportions along with the shape of the contoured shoulder strap the length is extended where it's needed to provide maximum comfort.
WIDTH: The fit is revised to wrap over the shoulders at a wider angle than standard fit harnesses, providing a wider footprint and a more comfortable carry.
ADJUSTMENT ACCESSIBILITY: Access to the shoulder harness load lifter adjustment are made more accessible by moving the hardware closer to the wearer along with extended sternum/chest strap lengths.
Whether you are on a day hike or an overnight backpacking trip, two design changes make our plus size hipbelt a game-changer when it comes to comfort on the trail.
LENGTH: Extended padding and support provides comfortable load transfer all the way around your hips and in combination with the extended webbing length will fit up to a 152 cm.
POCKET ACCESS: We've moved the quick-access pocket location to the front of the hipbelt, to ensure you have the quick access you expect from hipbelt pockets.
Our Plus Size packs are designed to follow Gregory’s standard torso length sizing. This is based purely on your back length and you can learn more here about how Gregory torso sizing works.
That being said, our testing and recognition of diverse body shapes has taught us that if you are more comfortable wearing the top of your hipbelt higher than the recommended 1” above your iliac crest due to your unique body shape, we recommend you consider down-sizing one torso length size. This will allow you to wear the pack higher on your hips and still have a smooth harness wrap over the back of your shoulder, which is key to achieving ultimate comfort on the trail.
